  • Just the basic stuff like "How I like your products, free samples/vouchers off or that your willing to test any new products and give a unbiased honest review".

    Hope it helps.

    Nice Idea. I think I'll give that a try. Anyone have any experience with how successful this can be?

    My OH once wrote a complaint letter to Tizer as the delivery truck kept blocking the entrance to the garage when they were delivering to local shop. A couple of days later the same truck pulled up at the front of the house and delivered about 100 cans of the stuff...........no one in the family likes the stuf but we were sure popular with all the local kids!!

    My kids collect pin badges, and i have written to many companies asking if they have them and where i can get them from, 6 out of 10 companies have sent them some pin badges, and 1 out of 10 have sent a sample or voucher.

    I just put in the letter about my kids love collecting pin badges, and have been collecting for 4 years and that they would love to add one of theres to the collection.

    Just be honest, offer to help like has been already said, say you love the product etc etc..

    I think it depends sometimes who reads your letter, some companies have sent my kids loads of stuff others nothing. But the kids love recieving the parcels they get.

    HTH

    and good luck

    I save the letter then, and just print off as I need, I try to send a few each week, then the kids tend to get a parcel a week. Just had one this morning, can't wait til they get back from school to see whats in it LOL its quite big too.

    I was as excited as the kiddies opening the parcel...the lovely man from stagecoach had sent them 12 pin badges and 2 driver name badges (With Gino on :confused: ).

    They are both running round now pretending to be GINO the bus drivers LOL
